So is Edge the best solution for reading pdfs right now? That's
unfortunate if it is...

Been using Edge to read PDF's for awhile now, but am trying to find one
that's more dedicated and that works better than Edge. Any
recommendations?
Adobe products still the best solution? Or is there a more accesible
alternative?

This is one of the reasons I have strong reservations about even approving messages of the "Saying Hello" type.  Spammers very often use this as a technique to gain entry.  I will be discussing this with the group owner.   Although I hesitate to do anything to reduce the sense anyone has of feeling welcome, one can do an "introduction/saying hello" as part of their first post with a question or answer. 

The risks from approving messages with no content beyond a "hello" are becoming higher than I'd like.

Any users of this program care to comment. When I attemp to change some

Re: Google Docs Menu Issue

Hello Ollie,

Mystic Access sells tutorials on the google suite " https://www.mysticaccess.com".

In the google suite, you need to enable screen reader support, and on the google suite access menu, you need to enable Braille support.
Look at " https://support.google.com/a/answer/1631886?hl=en".

Is that normal, orshould I enable or disable anything?

I actually think Google designed it this way. Browse mode should be
turned off when using Google docs. Use it in focus/forms mode. Give
them accessibility feedback at the below link.

I had the problem and solved it by going back to an earlier version of Direct Cut, I think 2.23.
